Hi Good day.. Maybe your printer head was not properly clean my solution for you is to clean it by using the head clean in the printer properties... please do the following:
1. 1. Click the Start button at the lower left corner of your screen.
2. Click on Control Panel. Next, choose Printers and Other Hardware, and then View Installed Printers or Fax Printers.
3. When the Printer page opens, right click on your printer's name, and choose Printing Preferences.
4. The Printing Preferences has five tabs across the top; choose Maintenance.
5. Click the Head cleaning, and then click clean again. to start the cleaning.

When the cleaning is done you can print a test page. and see if your print page is fine..
if it's not, you must clean it again... hope my solution will help you..

Regards
JR

SOURCE: Hp K80 printer

I had the same problem, and it seems to have corrected itself. I too, installed a new "45" black cartridge and got the message to remove and check color cartridge. After I removed it and cleaned it the message stayed on the display for about 5 minutes and then asked me to "align cartriges." After I aligned them I had no problems.

SOURCE: Won't print unless all ink cartridges have ink.

Try changing it in the properties section under device settings
or go to color management if you have it and change the setting to black only,.

SOURCE: Dell 926 won't recognize new color cartridge

Try this...shut down the printer. Insert new cartridge, let the printer cycle out with new cartridge. then reboot the computer. This should solve the problem. The cache in the printer will not cycle out. It wants to see the printer as a new entity

SOURCE: MFC-790CW; will not print the black color..

You probably have a plugged print head or the black ink feed is plugged.
Depending on how bad it is you may find it easier or even cheaper to replace the printer.

If this is a ink caused problem you stand a chance of fixing it if you are patient but you might go through half an ink cartridge to get it working, If it is stubborn it can take 20 or 30 cleaning cycles before you see any black. You can try using household vinegar (dissolves the dried ink) on a qtip or lint free paper towel to try to clean the print head. To do this you remove the ink cartridge and very gently rub the towel with the vinegar on the print head. This might require you to move the print head to one side so you can see the actual print area (where the ink comes out). Keep doing this until the towel starts to come clean ie not as much ink coming off. Then run a few print cycles and if this works your printer will print as good as the first day you had it.

The next stage would require filling a old clean ink cartridge with vinegar and running cleaning cycles. Usually can be pretty messy and you should rethink buying a new printer but will really clean things out.

It is also possible that the print head has picked up clay or paper lint from the paper and this has hardened like a cement. That means replacement.

Even though my black cartridge is full, my black and white documents are so light they are unreadable. My color cartridges are close to being empty. Can this be the cause?


printers use all cartridges to get the correct colour even black

None of the cartridges can be empty if you want to print.
Even if you only want to print black, just black you need to
replace the other three cartridges.
Yes color laser printing is expensive.

Caution lite flashing over cartridge of hp deskjet 940c. error message says that there is not color ink cartridge in printer. There is and the interface says the tank is full. It won't print...


Even though the interface says the cartridge is full, if the printer detects it being empty, odds are you will have to replace the color cartridge, even though you are only printing black.
You can try taking the cartridge out and cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser and reseat the color cartridge. If no change, replace the cartridge.

Won't print in black even with a new cart. when you try to print in color prints the back ground in a lite pinkish color and a shutter looking effect. please email me or call.865-637-9018 or 865-455-7179...


Clean your printer head and nozzle with printer utility software. Hope it would solve your problem, if not, open the black cartridge and fit it again and try to print again. Though, not work, perhaps problem in you black cartridge, so purchase an original cartridge. Thanks.

Wont print out document in blue print


Sorry your having this issue. Because Blue is a lite shade of Black, or a combination of red yellow and green ???? Point is even if you have only a black ink cartridge, or only color cartridge. Blue should be visiable and able to print.
Good luck, jasahasch

The color cartridge runs out very quickly even though I rarely use it. I make sure to print in black and white, and I manually choose the option "Use Black Cartridge only" but the color cartridge runs out...


Printer manufacturers design their printers to print some color mixed in with the black when you are only printing black. That is why your color cartridge is running out when you only print black and why it prints "weird colors" when the color cartridge is empty. Printer manufacturers sell the printers at a loss and make up the profit on the cartridges.

Not printing after color cartridge ran out - new black cartridge installed.


Yes, this printer has fixed printheads and must have ink in each color to prevent damage to the printheads. Even when printing black only each color is spit in the servicing area to keep the printhead unclogged.
